The annual report of th. Honolulu
Society for the' Prevention of Cruelty
to'-Anlmals could be only the record of
' tho lecen-watchfulness and effective
work of Mrs. Helen Wilder Craft,
whose labors ns Humane Officer have
ft - Mainland as In Hawaii nel. Tho kind
hearted and active head of the Society
; here has gained the distinction of hav-
lng her name entered In the archives
"if of many of the associations In tho
" States. It was only last summer that
L- she was mndo a Ufa member of both
? , tho Oakland and San Francisco Socle
i.,.,'' ties. This was because, while sojourn
ing In tho village, of Nlles. Cal., the
N . lady boldly Interfered In nn incident
of cruelty to animals, and Instituted a
prosecution ngalnst the offender.
5 As time goes on Mrs. Craft seems to
".' Income moro and more devoted to tho
, r work, Sho has always been known as
t one of ready sympathies, nnd being a
! porson of practical turn, there is noth-
; ' lng of the faddist about her methods.
, Iong before sho was commissioned as
i v'c ' Humane Officer nnd had rather startled
1 "f . ' the community by making inspections
,-'5 ' nnd arrests, Bho had done work inde-
1 endently and had endeavored to in
S tcreat othoro in a movement new to
Hawaii. Now there is very general
f acceptance of tho conditions sho has
, brought about, nnd in a few years
thcro has como to be consideration for
the Society, appreciation of Its good
deeds, a valuation on Its high worth,
the support of n healthy public senti
ment, tho unreserved endorsement of
tho wholo community and feelings of
esteem, respect or fear on the part of
nil owners of dumb beasts.
Mrs. Helen Wilder Crnft gives much
of her own time to what she considers
her duties ns Humano Officer, and In
the performance of these duties Is
dhnrp'Cycd and courageous nnd If It is
n matter ot money is ns liberal with
her owu funds as in any good causo.

When Mrs. Ciaft went to the Coast
last summer n man who had bsen as
signed as her aide was found Ineffi
cient and was dismissed. Returning
to the Islands she secured ns orderly,
Apana, a Chinese boy who bad been In
her employ and who, In the Police De
partment Is rated a bicycle patrolman.
Ho assists tho Humano Officer In tho
Investigation of cases reported, in se
curing evidence for prosecutions and
in making arrests. Apana has proven
himself a faithful, capable odlcer, fear
less and entirely impartial.
It Is part of the self-imposed task ot
the Humano Officer to frequently in
spect In and around Honolulu the sta
bles and corrnls holding llvo stock,
lly this no llttlo reform has been
brought about In ono instance draft
nnlmalsfound to havo cobblestones for
stall floors now have straw provided on
a smooth surface. Drainage was Im
proved in many places. Mrs. Craft
says that tho Honolulu Stock Yards
Stables, at tho come.' ot tClng and
South streets, were found to bo especi
ally neat and clean. The horses and
mules ot the Tram company are now
treated much better than they ever
During 1899 there wero n number of
proceedings against men driving draft
animals with harness sores and the
drivers are quick to learn mat it is
dangerous to themselves to use a horso
or muie wnn u ouru uuuiv ut ucun, ouu
better still many of them tire looking
Into harness methods with a view to
avoiding tho chafing ot tho skins ot
The blackest chapter In the book of
the Humano Officer for tho year la the
story of tho gouging out ot a horse's
eye by a native man; Tho fellow was
crazy drunk, became Infuriated at tho
horse and taking a spur savagely in
flicted wounds that most painfully de
stroyed tho eyo. The man was sent to
prison for two months and besides re
quired to pay a fine ot S20.
It Is not very long ago that Mrfl.
Craft heard that some Chinese wore in
the habit of plucking feathers from
llvo fowl. Sho put a stop to this
promptly by making out cases against
two men. They wero sent to prison
for twontv days.
In following up one case with her
usual determination, Mrs. Craft found
It necessary to arrest a Tram company
driver, herself taking tho man from his
car to the Polico Station. Out of this
happening grew a damage suit (or
?5,000 against tuo itumane urucer. iuo
case came before a Jury, which re
fused an award to the plaintiff.
The Humano Officer, next to men
tioning tho generous citizens who show
their sympathy and confidence, and
her aide, desires that credit be given

ahoeratlon and assistance in forwarding
-Te.mUalon of the Society for tho Pro-
vcntlon of Cruelty to Animals. There
Is law against cruelty, but no special
fund for enforcement of tho statute.
Court records show that In 1899 there
hnvo been forty-four arrests by the
Humane Officer or at her Instigation,
and 600 investigations.
Nearly, If not qulto all of these prison
era havo ben prosecuted by Deputy
Marshal Chtlllngworth, who soys:
"Tho convictions havo been fully 90
per cent showing caution in proceed

Wilcox has not been at nil lenient
with offenders. The moral effect of the
work has been most wholesome Effect
Is shown right In Honolulu, it being a
rare thing indeed now to soo, a bruised
or lame liorso in harness, and cases of

Further Assistance cf Iroquois Refused
May Be Beached Near Harbor Prored
lo Be Will Built Ship.
Tho tug left tho wreck of tho
William Carson nt 2:30 o'clock to
.Como in after coal. Tho Lehua re
mained by her with a lino attach
ed. Tho William Carson was found yes
terday morning by tho 'tug Elou still
floating on her starboard side. After
many attempts a lino was finally made
fast, and the steamer Lohua and the
tug Iroquois having also arrived on
tho scene they proceeded to tako hold.
Tho latter finally returned to port
leaving tho Elou to do the work alone.
After towing nil night and tho great
er part of today tho tug had managed
to bring the wreck up to a position one
mile out from Iho beli buoy where sho
remains at present awaiting assistance,
as a request had been mado of Com
mander Merry to havo tho Iroquois
sent out. This seems to be the only
chanco of saving tho Cnrson, ns with
the help of tho Iroquois Bho could, be
turned over on to her keel and towed
Into tho harbor. As she lays at present
sho Is drawing 40'fect of water and her
starboard anchor Is hanging loose.
That sho will not be brought Into
tho harbor In lier prcsont position Is a
certainty as It is Imposslblo on account
ot her depth nnd the chances ot block
ing tho cntranco to the harbor can not
Thcro nro possibilities that sho may
sink at almost any time, and old sea
captains on tho front nro considerably
surprised that sho has stayed so long
abovo water. They think she must be
a remarkably well built ship to hold
tho air so well, but hardly think it
possiblo that anything outside ot tuo
cargo can bq saved. When asked what
value they placed on tho ship ns sho
stood this morning opposlto Diamond
Head, thoy said: "Not flvo dollars."
Tho R. P. Rlthct passed tho tug and
tho Carson nt 11 o'clock this morning
and Captain Frlls, who was a passen
ger, states that tho wreck Is on her
beam ends and her rails aro oven with
tho water. Ho thinks It romaikablo
that sho floats at all and believes It
to be impossible to save nor.
Tho cneo of the Volante in San Fran
cisco harbor six years ago is almost a
similar ono. Tho Volanto was lying in
the same position ns tho Carson and
the tug Fearless, now tho Iroquois, af
ter many attempts turned tho vessel on
her keel and towed her Into safety.
Commander Merry has declined to
allow the tug Iroquois to render any
moro assistance towards saving tho
Carson. Ho thinks he has done nil that
can bo asked ot him.
Japanese Try to Escape.
Thero is still more to the story of
tho Japancso trying to run tho Kukul
street guard last 'night, mention ot
which is mado In another column. Tho
Jnpaneso, as soon as they saw all was
mtlot again, mndo a second and more
determined effort to get out 01 quaran
tine. As It happened Deputy Marshal
Chilllngwortb, Lieut Leslio and a
couple of mounted patrolmen wore
closo by. A shout brought them to the
place as the Japanese were trying to
get through Gy climbing up on all
sides. The officers made a cnargo to
gether, drovo the men Into tho creek
and back into tne quarantine aisinci.
One of tho Japanese tried to pull
Leslio from his horse. The young offi
cer' becamo so angered that. In his
chase after the fellow, he lost his boar
Ings and was caught by a suspended
wlro that took oft both ills epaulettes
and camo near Jerking him from his
Walalun Rumor Denied.
Tho report that San Francisco sub
scribers to Walalua stock had refus
ed to receive their stock on tho basis
ot four and a half instead of thrco mil
lion capitalization, is untrue absolute
ly. Ed. D. Tennoy received a lotter
from W. A. Bowen stating that all but
C35 shares of the 10,000 subscribed tor
had slimed acaulttances ana tnoso wno
had not signed had not at tno time 01
writing boen called upon.
Other Islands Quiet.
Tho Mauna Loa reports that news
ot the reappearance ot tho plague in
Honolulu has caused but llttlo excite
ment at Lahalna. The passengers and
freight ot tho Klnau and Olaudlno wero
landed without any trouble.
The same quarantine regulations
will bo enforced as before.
Chasing the Missing.
Inspector Fullorton in making his
rounds this morning found six Japan
iha mlBBlnc from his district. Ho Im
mediately started out In search of his
proteges and found ono on School
street. With tho help of guards the
wholo crowd of six was found and
taken back to tho quarantine district.
TLe outside inspectors under Judge
Carter aro hard at work. Most of the
men aro supplied with horses.
HARWELL'S STORY TOLD

fered Hawaii's Bill.
Sam Parker aid Prince Duld Hake Good Im
presslon Tariff and' Ships Life Tenure
of Judges Won't Go.
At a meeting of the Executive Coun
cil this foronoon President Dole pre
sented to tho Ministers the salient
points contained in tho communica
tions ot A, S. Hnrtwell that wero re
ceived by tho America Maru. Presi
dent Dolo summed them up to a Bul
letin reporter as follows:
Thero nro Bomo Important people. In
Washington, not members of Congress,
who opposo allowing anything from
tho Islands to pass into tho United
States frco of duty.
Certain members of Congress favor
continuing the Reciprocity Treaty as
It Is now and putting Hawaii on the
samo plane with Porto Rica
Samuel Pa'ker and 'Prince David
Kawananakoa aro making n very good
Impression in Washington.
Objection is mado by certain mem
bers of Congress to tho Territorial Act
as it now stands. Tney think that
thcro Is too much machinery attached
to it. The lite tcnuro of office Is ob
jected to on tho ground that this dif
ference from tho other territories- of
the United States would amount to dis
crimination. It Is also desired by certain members
ot Congress that the Tariff Regula
tions be preserved as thoy are now.
This arises from tho fear of tho labor
unions who believe that Hawaii will
become n manufacturing country and
that Asiatic labor will bo put In tho
field ngalnst them.
Tho samo clement of opposition fa
vors treating Hawaii in tho samo man
ner as the other new possessions nnd
allowing none statehood although such
a law could be repealed at any time.
This Is merely tho expression of senti
ment at tho present time.
Certain members of Congress also
opposo tho oxtcnslon of United States
Bhlpplng laws to this country for fear
that American built vessels win
monopolize tho trade of tho new pos
sessions. Exciting debates will prob
ably result from this stand taken by
members of Congress.
Tho President and tho Administra
tion feel tho necessity of early legisla
tion In leganrto public lands.
Tho matter of opening tho public
schools next Tuesday was tefcrrcd to
Minister Mott-Smlth who will confer
with tho Board ot Health as to tho ad
visability of such proceeding.
Tho application of "W. J. Coelho for
a notary public's papers was refused.
Tho Executive Council authorized tho
Minister of tho Interior to erect n shed
on thnt portion of tho water front in
cluded between tho Llkellko wharf
and tho Ewa end of tho Pacific Mall
wharf Bhed for Custom House pur
poses. This plnco will bo necessary at
all times, but tho present situation
makes It doubly so.

tlon of Japanese and Chinese Goods
Particulars In Case.
Tho old Flshmnrket wharf has been
set nsldo by the Government as a placo
to assist In relieving tho blockade ot
freight on tho Pacific Mall wharf. As
fast as tho Japancso and Chlncso goods
are fumigated they will bo moved to
this plpro wl'leh' Is to be used as a dis
tributing station. Most ot it being
consigned to Chlncso merchants who
aro In tho quarantine district they will
be unable to attend to the removal of
their goods; consequently it will re
main thero until somo plan as to dis
posal can bo hit upon. Tho flshmarkct
wharf can Just accommodate about
4,000 tons and what Is hero now will
fill nearly all ot tho space. Seven hun
dred tons ot fumigated freight Is al
ready on the wharf while tho balanco
of what is coming remains on tho Pa
cific Mail-wharf. Most ot this is to go
through tho fumigation process.
Tho'.warchouso hr.s been found too
small Tor, this purpose, so It has been
filled to ita.jlmlt:and tho rest ot tho
goods will b0vfumlcated on the wharf
whero thoy wem.landcd. To do this
the shed of tho Pacific Mall wharf is
being rapidly boarded up to make it
comparatively air tight, and tho wholo
of the remaining cargoes of the Algoa
and Nonyo Mara will be fumigated at
one time. This will be done by to
morrow. As will bo seen, nn Immense
amount of labor will be saved.
Tho Pacific Mall wharf has been In
a congested condition since last Mon
day, when tho Algoa commenced to
dlschnrgo her 2,210 tons ot freight upon
n wharf that was already filled to tho
ratters ot tho shed with cargoes from
the steamers Warrlmoo, Gaelic and tho
Tho Wnrrlinoo's cargo was placed on
tho Wnlklkl end (f tho dock and did
not need fumigation, but It was re
moved very slowly, part of It still re
maining. The cargoes of tho other
thrco steamers, amounting to 3,200
tons ot Oriental merchandise had to
pass through the fumigation process,
this was done to tho Gaelic's freight
which was hen removed to tho Ewa
end ot tho dock nnd covered with tax-.
paullns. The Nanyo Maru b cargo Ms
now In tho waroliouso with part ot the
Algoa's cargo awaiting fumigation.
Part of tho cargo from tho Algoa was
fumigated yesterday and was then
moved into the street and stacked Into
huge piles. Most of it was carted
away beforo It commenced to rain last
night and what was left together with
the aaellc'8 cargo, sustained very llt
Thero nro 9.000 tubs of Bako and soy
piled up on tho corner of Alakea street
opposlto tho dock. They are awaiting
removal, but men nnd drays aro scarce
so this frclgnt will probably remain
there for somo (lays to come.
Tho way the work Is now progress
ing and tho arrangements made for Its
removal to tho flshmurkct wharf will
undoubtedly put tho Pacific Mail whnrt
in proper shapo to receive nnd hnndlo
